By Invisible Fence® Brand on 03-28-2024

There are certain things only cat owners understand. In addition to how to keep cats from scratching your furniture and how to keep cats from pooping in your yard, the other most frequently asked how-to question for feline companions is how to keep your cat off the counter. Lucky for you, we put together a short video from our Certified Pet Trainer, Sandy Benes, with tips on how to keep your cat off the counter.

Why Do Cats Jump on the Counter?

The key to preventing your cat from jumping up on your counter is understanding why your cat is jumping on the counter in the first place. Cats jump on the counter for a variety of reasons including looking for food or a safe secluded area. Cats naturally also like to be elevated and counters provide the perfect location for them to get a wider view of their territory.

Solutions to Keep My Cat Off the Counter

Using some common household items like tin foil or double-sided sticky tape can prevent your cat from jumping on the counter. The sound and feeling of these on your cat's paws work as a deterrent to keep them off your counter. But how realistic are these tools really?
